I got a good job working in the office of a factory a few towns away. Every morning I'd wake up around 5 a.m., walk to the train station and ride the train for about 30 minutes to get to my job. I usually didn't get home until after 6 p.m. My office wasn't anything particularly spectacular. But it was a good job and steady work. And since I was living with my parents, I got to save money.
